According to the recent data released by the Central Statistics Office (CSO) industrial output dropped for successive month in June, decreasing by 2.2%. The core industries like manufacturing, mining and power sectors had all badly hit. The production of capital goods had also dropped. Inflation is still at high for July at 9.64% even though it has slightly improved compared to 9.87% for the previous month. The constant hike in diesel and petrol prices along with high interest rates are providing tough challenge to the automobile sector. A weakened GDP and a weak Rupee against Dollar is tipped to make the scenario worse.
